UK weather: Brits brace for MORE flood chaos as Met Office issues amber 'heavy rain' warning after Storm Babet havoc | The SunOctober 25, 2023
BRITS are being told to brace for MORE flood chaos – with forecasters issuing alerts for fog and heavy rain.
The Met Office has put two yellow weather warnings and an amber warning in place just days after Storm Babet wreaked havoc across Britain.
An amber rain warning has been issued for the Isle of Wight and Southampton.
It says power cuts and the loss of other services to some homes and businesses is likely due to flooding.
Meanwhile, Manchester, Hull, Stoke-on-Trent, Nottingham, Birmingham, Peterborough and Norwich are under a fog warning until 11am today.
Forecasters say the dense fog is expected to lead to travel disruption this morning.

And another yellow rain warning is covering most of the south of the country – including parts of Wales.
The met office predict that heavy rain will cause more flooding and disruption.
The warning is in place until 10am today.
It comes as 63 flood warnings are already in place after Storm Babet this week left thousands of homes underwater.
